How do I perform isearch over a whole projectile project, so that I can cycle through all occurrences of a string? This would be equivalent to multi-isearch-file for all files in the projectile project.

I recommend projectile-ag for this. Works very well and is somewhat faster than isearch


Projectile has built-in support for searching through project files with grep (or similar utils like ack or ag). See for example projectile-grep.

If you want to use multi-isearch-file, this seems to work:

(defun projectile-multi-isearch-files ()
  (multi-isearch-files (projectile-current-project-files)))
